Video Game Review: ‘Harley Quinn’s Revenge’

“Batman: Arkham City — Harley Quinn’s Revenge” is a new downloadable content package for the original “Batman: Arkham City” video game released October 18, 2011.

“Harley Quinn’s Revenge” takes place shorty after the events of “Arkham City.” The Joker’s lover, Harley Quinn, mourning the death of her “puddin”, vows to take back Arkham City and finally bring down Batman and his “Boy Wonder” Robin.

The downloadable content is about two to three hours long and features the same great combat, characters and atmosphere that made “Batman: Arkham City” such a hit.

The best part about the new content is players finally have the opportunity to play as Robin, an option that was not available in the original game.

The downloadable content is overall a great new experience in the world of Batman.

Grade:B

However, while I had a lot of fun going back to the world of Batman, I felt as if this downloable content was acceptable for what it was, more of a good thing. But for $10, I don’t think it delivered a long enough experience to make my purchase feel justified. When it ended I felt as if I wanted more for my money.

If Rocksteady plans on releasing more downloadable content similar to this, I’m all for it. But unless they drop the price, or at least extend the gameplay time more, I don’t think it’s worth the $10.
